Default tech meet in april 2008?

figured i'd open a new thread to discuss the subject of a tech meet in april rather than just continuing to abuse that poor other thread

so ... what dates would be good for people and what tech things would people be interested in doing?

from what i recall 20 april is another euro GTG and we were also looking to do a drive afterwards (right?) so that date is out. sean and dave work most saturdays so sundays would be best.

April's no good for me, beeing as I just started a new job and went part time at the old one. I pay my car taxes tomorrow, then I'm thin on money until May. Payday on April 30th for the new job, but it's only for 5 days, decent paycheck this Friday from my old-FT (now PT) job, then it's every other Friday after that (4 days on each of those paychecks). So I've got about 3-weeks pay to last me about a month.

I'd definately look forward to a future tech meet though.

I'm not sure.
Right now I have some problem about emission test.


NOx GPM Limits 3.0000
my badboy was 3.2179
so I didn't pass emissions.

I have long tube header & Magnaflow Catalytic Cat Converter from ebay last year.

I still don't know what i'm gonna do.
should I buy a new Cat or get new Oxygen sensor?

I've been gone a lot. Trying to catch up to this thread.
I think I'm ok for the 27th. May just watch and help.

Anyone know anything about the inside of the Instrument cluster. Actually it's my daughters 328is.

the extent of my knowledge ends with the fact that there's a chip or something that tells it how many miles are on the car and service interval stuff. what's wrong with it?
